South Korean tech company Astell&Kern has launched its latest state-of-the-art headphone amp dubbed the ACRO CA1000.

Designed to combine the functions and portability of a top of the range amplifier with the brand’s ethos of delivering original sound, the CA1000 offers not only a high-performance output, but a stylish, minimalist look too.

The amp comes fully equipped with Quad-DAC for detailed and balanced sound, a built-in battery, crossfeed support for a more natural acoustic experience with headphones and ReplayGain so sound levels automatically adjust across different music tracks.

Rounded out with a view screen with a display adjustable up to 60 degrees, the Astell&Kern ACRO CA1000 is available to buy now from the brand’s online webstore, retailing at $2,100 USD.
